Nether Heyford graves of girl and soldier could shed light on Dark Ages

Two graves found in Northamptonshire could shed light on ordinary people’s lives after the Romans left Britain.
The graves, near a Roman villa at Nether Heyford, contain a girl and an armed man buried in the Dark Ages.

They were discovered by metal detector experts working with the Community Landscape And Survey Project (CLASP).

Steve Young, former NFL quarterback, ex-lecturer at Northampton University and archaeologist in charge, said the woman was probably a Christian and the man possibly an Anglo Saxon.

I may have edited that slightly.
